While it may seem at times like it takes a lot to give to someone else, it’s simply not the case. It might seem like one needs resources, time, energy, but anyone give back. Indeed, it’s the truth. Remarkably, one doesn’t have to have much to help another person. While society often thinks you must be well off to help others, this is just not true.  Moreover, a lot of the world’s best and renowned humanitarians were impoverished and at some points even famished or in near death situations. In alignment with this, Mother Teresa, a Catholic humanitarian and missionary, is famously recorded teaching that, “If you can’t feed a hundred people, feed just one” meaning any individual can give back, he or she just has to be willing to do so. Jeff Schneider, CEO of a private, Austin-based company is more than willing.

Yes, charity is held in high regard. Indubitably, the value of charity goes across cultures, religions, socioeconomic boundaries, and the world over. Humans all over the place recognize and appreciate the social utility in helping one another. A famous Jewish proverb says, “Deeds of giving are the very foundations of the world.” Similarly, Muhammed, found of Islam, said circa 620 CE that “A man’s true wealth is the good he does in this world.” Aristotle, widely studied philosopher born 384 BC who is known as the “first teacher”, likewise taught that, “the essence of life is to serve others and do good” and Jeff Schneider, a father of 3, seeks to reflect to do the same in his own life.

The well-known, American businessman and car manufacturer, Henry Ford famously said, “The highest use of capital is not to make more money but to make money do more for the betterment of life.” It’s apparent that humans seriously value charity, and yet how many humans are actually acting on that notion? Jeff Schneider certainly is. Knowing kids hold the key to the future, Jeffry Schneider has dedicated himself to improving the lives of children everywhere. Whether he’s on Twitter, reading to kids at local schools, participating in wellness events, or spending his time at facilities for abused and neglected children, Jeffry’s commitment to helping kids is unwavering.
